Artemis is the Goddess of the Hunting, the Moon, and Wild Animals.
The Goddess Artemis came into existence from the destruction of Delos. Artemis and Her brother, Apollo, together appeared from the ruins to defeat The Destroyer.
Artemis rarely fights, and almost never hand-to-hand. The Goddess prefers to act as an assassin or an archer, preferring to sneak up on her enemies or shoot them down from a distance. When cornered, though, the Goddess keeps silvered knives on hand to combat melee assailants.
Artemis teachers her followers to take power into their own hands and remain unattached to the world around them. The Goddess has never been wed or given birth, and expects the same from her followers.
Clergy and Temples
The Priests of Artemis rarely work in temples but wander the world. Most buildings dedicated to Artemis are shrines made by explorers or nomads in the deep wilderness. Artemis seldom makes direct contact with her followers, showing her favor through blessings and signs. Artemis expects Her worshipers to be virgins as She is.
